5 starstarstarstarstar A Great Day in the Yarra Valley
ust spent a fantastic day in the Yarra Valley with Epicurean Tours. Their effervescent and very knowledgeable driver Bill ensured everything went smoothly (including picking us up from our hotel spot on time) and not only steered us in a timely fashion through our samplings, but also gave us some great information about the history and technical aspects of wine-growing in the area. We really enjoyed the company of our ragtag small group of companions, who it transpires were all in Melbourne for the Opera (I actually learned a lot about Opera during the drive!). We sampled some great regional wines and cheeses via De Bortolli, Yerring Station, Chandon and Dominique Portet. Had a great lunch at Chandon (with sparklies aplenty) and finished up with coffee and sweets at Dominique Portet. Given it was my wife's birthday, I was ecstatic when they brought out a cake with a candle at the end of the day (gluten free - as my wife is coeliac!). What more could you want? A fantastic day in every respect and one which promises to be one of my wife's most memorable birthdays. Thankyou Bill and Epicurean - and thankyou all the folks we met on the day. Highly recommended.

5 starstarstarstarstar A top Notch Tour
Whenever we book a higher end tour, I tend to be cautious as to if we will receive the value that we pay for. In the case of Epicurean and the Yarra Valley Wine Tour, it was most assuredly worth the extra cost published by other tours. Starting with the fact that it is designed for 2-10 people, they pick up you up from the individual hotels, and you would be hard pressed to find a better guide than Bill, the entire experience was most enjoyable. The selected stops provided a range of wines, lunch was delicious and leisurely, and the interaction between Bill and the owners/staff at the stops spoke of well-cultivated relationships. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn about Australian wines in a relaxed and informative manner.

5 starstarstarstarstar Worthy of your money
I highly recommend you book this tour. Bill picked us up from our hotel bang on time. He made sure we had good service and attention at all the wineries we visited. It was a scorching hot day and he made sure we were always comfortable. There is plenty of wine to taste as well as fantastic cheese. The lunch at Chandon Domaine was very good. We were very full and tasted so much wine we only wanted coffee at the last stop. The winery staff clearly have a good relationship with Epicurean and were friendly and informative. Driving around the beautiful Yarra Valley in an air conditioned van with Bill sharing his local knowledge of the area. What a great day!
